Fullback, Fiat’s new medium-duty pick-up truck made its world début at the 2015 Dubai International Motor Show – the largest automotive event in the Middle East and North Africa – and will be available across the entire EMEA region from May 2016.

Fiat_Fullback_1With Fullback, the Fiat Professional makes a strong entry into the medium-duty pick-up truck segment in the EMEA region, where 675,000 units were sold in 2014 (23% of total sales in the LCV segment). This share is even larger in the Middle East – 58% – and in Africa – 52%.

Fiat_Fullback_4The new Fullback is ready to take on any challenge, hence its name, which is derived from the key position in rugby or American football – the last man in the line of defence and also a defender in attack – which denotes a player who is capable of dealing with any situation.

Fiat_Fullback_3The Fullback line-up includes four configurations (Single Cab, Extended Cab, Double Cab and Chassis) and three trim levels. All versions of the Fullback have a maximum height of 1,780 mm and are up to 1,815 mm wide with a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. The length varies depending on the configuration – 5,155 mm (Single Cab), 5,275 mm (Extended Cab), 5,285 mm (Double Cab). Also the length of the cargo compartment changes – 2,265 mm (Single Cab), 1,850 mm (Extended Cab) and 1,520 mm (Double Cab). The payload capacity, according to the configuration, comes up 1,100 kg.

FIAT_FULLBACK_2In the Middle East and Africa the Fullback pick-up truck will be available with two engine options – a 2.5-litre diesel with a power output of between 81 kW (110 hp) and 131 kW (178 hp) and a 2.4-litre petrol engine that delivers 97 kW (132 hp) and has a five-speed manual gearbox. This engine offer is aligned to the best competition and can be combined, according to each market’s offer, with a manual gearbox or automatic transmission, both with five gears. In Europe and other non-European markets, the Fullback will be available with a 2.4-litre aluminium turbo diesel engine with two power outputs – 113 kW (150 hp) or 133 kW (180 hp) – combined with a new six-speed manual gearbox or five-speed automatic transmission with sports mode.
Visitors to the 2015 Dubai International Motor Show will not only have the opportunity to be the first people in the world to see the new Fiat Professional pick up – they’ll also be able to admire some Moparised Fullback models that are equipped with special accessories, previewing a special range currently under development by Mopar.
